If you are adventurous, have the stamina and want to explore, this is the place you should visit. As you enter the attraction, you can proceed to the bridge and go straight hiking up the steep stairway towards the leaning Pagoda. You can easily spend more than 2 hours if you want to explore all the area. If you are exhausted or do not want to walk, you can take either the buggy or the cart pulled by a horse to go around the compound. We were lucky that the place was not crowded when we visited immediately after their 3-day public holidays on 31-May. You can also take a boat to tour the canal/river and surrounding area. Nice place for a half day hike/tour. Do remember to wear comfortable clothing and sport shoes for quite an extensive hours of walking.

Nice scenic spot outside of Suzhou. Took a cab from town up to tiger hill and loved all the plants and old pagodas and buildings. It's a nice easy hike that kids can do and lots of places to explore. The moat around is pretty and the boat ride is fun. The bamboo forest and tea field is so beautiful and all of the foliage feels very peaceful. If you go out the south exit, walk towards the river and hop on a tour boat! Such a cool ride watching the locals use the river and looking at all the old buildings. It will drop you off amongst red lanterns and restaurants and street food stalls. A great experience. Boys ages 3 and 6 loved it.

The Song Dynasty poet, Su Shi said, "It is a lifelong pity if having visited Suzhou you did not visit Tiger Hill." I would agree with this statement. The gardens were wonderful and peaceful and the tower on the top of the hill leans precariously. Many myths and legends surround Tiger Hill; my favourites included the sword testing rock; the sword pond in which 3000 swords are said to have been buried and the Spring of Simplicity and Honesty (who could not enjoy a legend named thus).

The park is beautiful and the pagoda has a slight inclination due to the inappropriate foundation. The myth behind the name (tiger hill) is probably the most interesting feature. However, if you are in Suzhou you probably shouldn't miss it.

If the place is not crowded it's a nice place to spend an afternoon. It is hilly, and you can have some nice views
